    Question Unable to access NTFS partitions in Linux

    Hi folks,

    I have a dual OS system running Windows XP and RH Linux 9. XP is installed on NTFS partition and the rest three drives are NTFS too.

    I installed RH Linux 9. I am a newbie in Linux. I am unable to access the NTFS partitions in Linux. Please help me a way out.

    UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity. Dennis Ritchie.

    RHL 9.0 does not natively allow you to access NTFS partitions. Almost all other distros will allow you to access them. I think you need to get a patch or something for NTFS to work. Check this out:


    Hope that helps.

    Here are some very easy instructions to follow. And you don't really have to recompile your kernel... you just need to install the driver and load the module.



    Keep in mind that every time you upgrade your kernel, you'll have to upgrade this too.
    At least... I have had to. I'm only using it on one box... my laptop.

    All the other boxes I was smart enough to leave a decent sized fat partition to xfer files back and forth from. But... that still doesn't help when the file you want to copy is in use can't can't be copied... *wink* *wink*
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
